Comets come away with 9-0 tennis scrimmage win / March 07, 2019
Halifax County High School boys’ tennis rolled to a 9-0 win in scrimmage action Tuesday.

Coach David Riddle saw positives from the first scrimmage.

“This was a great way to start things out. Coach Palmore and I were a little worried that we would come out flat with all the weather and illness problems that we have had over the past two weeks. But top to bottom the guys came out and played solid. Any early match jitters that we saw were shaken off quickly and put away quickly as the matches progressed,” said Riddle.

“We saw some things that we certainly need to work on, but overall most of what we saw was positive. We will look to play strong again on Thursday in our second scrimmage against Jefferson Forest as we prepare to start the regular season next week,” said Riddle.
